This paper analyzes Douglass' Narrative of the "Life of Frederick Douglass" that uses other African American literature to illustrate some of the ways slaves resisted slavery and were able to create an autonomous culture of their own in doing so.

From the Paper:

"In two slave narratives by Frederick Douglass and Harriet Jacobs we see an illustration of Blessingame's claim in his essay "Slave Culture" that such autobiographies give us a window to the inside half'of the slave's life which never appears in the commentaries of outsiders'. Indeed apart from showing the harsh brutalities of slave life during slavery both narratives of Douglass and Jacobs lend a voice and identity to slaves whose voices and identity were often systematically oppressed by the prejudice and racism of slavery.
